Hi , so I am experience quite the intimidating issue right now. My computer is an Alienware x51 r2 . I just recently was giving this computer , and it had a passcode to log into Windows with(which I didnt have) so I attempted to factory restore it which it wouldn't allow me to do . So instead I looked up online on how to clear this disk partitions , so I ended up cleaning all off my disk partitions . Which at first I thought wasn't a problem because after doing so it allowed me to install Windows. So after Windows finished installing it restarted the computer. But after when I booted up it said something about my internal hard disk not booting up. It said to try to reseat it . This is where I'm stuck and can't access the OS. I have never dealt with a situation like this . Any assistance will be greatly appreciated thanks guys!
